2 Corinthians 11:25 “Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;”
2 Corinthians 11:26 “[In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils by [mine own] countrymen, [in] perils by the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren;”
…From yesterday…
Since he could only move one finger, he decided to make the best use of it. He slowly developed a code of communication with his wife!
He touched his wife’s arm with that finger and indicated to her that he wanted her to call the engineers together again. He asked that the team be reassembled. Using the same method of tapping her arm, he was able to communicate with the engineers and convince them to get back to work. Everything seemed foolish, but the project got under way again!
To cut the long story short, for 13 years Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger on his wife’s arm, until the bridge was finally completed, and today, the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge stands in all its glory as a tribute to the triumph of one man’s indomitable spirit and his determination not to be defeated by circumstances.
It is also a tribute to the engineers who had faith in a man considered mad by half of the world and to the wonderful Mrs. Roebling who for 13 long years patiently decoded the messages of her husband to the team of engineers!
This story is one of a “Never-Say-Die Attitude”, which is another way of saying dogged! The Roeblings proved against all odds that dreams can come true, no matter the obstacles.
The impossible can be realised with determination and persistence.
Hear Apostle Paul again:
Acts 20:24 “But none of these things move me…”
To be continued…
